(en) g20 protests lead up. mutiny* collective

Two mornign actions disrupted business as usual for war profiteers and mongers
On Friday morning the Mutiny Collective and other assorted bodies did two short
direct action disruptions to business in Melbourne Town. First target was Tenix
Corporation who are involved in Defense projects and production.
Their office was infiltrated and disrupted for 5 minutes, during which
discussion were held with the staff about the nature of their work, the nature
of the G20 and the MPH campaign. They were largey amused and appreciated the
break from monotony (as spoken to myself by one of the guys in a "training
session"). Surreptiously, glitter was sprinkled on the floor and little war
figurines were superglued to less obvious surfaces.

The second action was directed at the Army Recruitment office where we were met
with force (lol) by some beefcake plainclothes workers who were quite proactive
and agressive in attempting to eject us.

More glitter was seen floating through the air, "Dunno Mate, I just work here"
and rifle stickers were put up, and general chaos was created by bodies going
left and right and Bear Hugs beinfg offered by the workers. (they are employed
to Love, after all). The Police were called immediately.

People disappeared into the warren and a lot more people were forcibly ejected
into the lift foyer by the workers. When all were accounted for, we discovered
that despite holding elevators open, they had been shut down by the building

14 stories worth of Fire Escape stairs beckoned. About 8 floors down the Fire
Alarm went off (no idea who set it off, either protester or security).

Quickly the Fire Escape filled with workers and we floated out with the rest and
made our escape.
Business As Usual had been briefly disrupted, and the War Mongers were made
aware that we had our eyes on them, despite their not being directly involved
with global diplomatic forums like the G20.
